Very bad for school trip

I was in this restaurant during a school trip in the last april and I can say that this place is good for common people but bad for students. Why? Simply: the attitude of bosses with their waiters is the worse ever seen by me in a restaurant and also the boss (a women with ambition of dictature... read more

The Lasagna and Spaghetti Carbonara were awesome. Pretty close to Italy. We went for a late lunch on a Sunday so it was not busy, and we enjoyed the food.

We went to this restaurant twice - for lunch, and on another day for dinner. Both times, all 3 of us had pasta dishes which were authentic Italian and absolutely delicious. The owner, Mr. Di Lella, was a lovely man who seemed to be so happy to have us at his restaurant, particularly because we were able to communicate with... More

We have reserve for 8pm our table and they were waiting for us with a very nice table overlooking the window. We tried a Margherita Pizza as a starter share between the 3 of us. Next we ask for lasagna a la bolognesa, ñoquis sorrentino and pasta with salmon and zuccini. Tiramisu to share. What can I say? It was... More

My wife and stayed close to the The Olive Restuarant in Olivaer Platz in Berlin. The service is very good, and it seems as though this is a family-run business. The menu is wide-ranging, but I opted for the beef Lasagna. This is the best lasagna I have ever had, and went back later for seconds! My wife opted for... More

I stayed bang opposite to this resto and liked the open ambience and palatable taste of pizzas here. Nice and quick delivery.

Very nice meal and service. A lot of locals which is a good sign. Would recommend to anyone. Close to the Kudamm but away from the tourists.

The corner is loud but sunny. The Olive is only one short half-block from West Berlin's main drag, the "Ku-damm." My wife and I saw down at a sunny table. A woman came out of the restaurant and stood before us and said "What?" Which was what I started to think but instead said that we actually wanted to eat... More

This entry should be combined with the other listing. It's an average café-ristorante serving a wide range of Italian food at a reasonable price. Pizzas offer the best value but judging by other reviews, they're not great.
